Mad About You tease?
Hahah sounds like Kyle is teasing the Mad About You theme song (which is apparently named "Final Frontier") in the jam between Sing a New Song and John Hardy. Also Crosseyed and Painless tease by Kang in Blackberry Blossom (around 7:40)

Solid Tour Closer
The second of a two-night stand in Whistler, this was also the last show of Winter Carnival 2001 - and what a show it is! First set breaks out some relative rarities (John Hardy, The Chicken) and a great Sand Dollar. The second set seems designed to be an event - Blackberry Blossom gets into a cool electronica thing; the drums > jam > Black & White is really special, including a Birdland-like vocal jam with Love Supreme lyrics; Shantytown rages with Liza and Jillian on backing vocals; and the triple-threat encore (including a seldom-played Well You Needn't) is most fine indeed. All of this comes to us in excellent sound on this recording, which is one of the best audience sources I've heard.
No criticism in my four-star rating...I just reserve 5 stars for the most absolutely essential shows. This one ought to be four-and-a-half, with an edge over the previous night's great show.
